LAUREL, Del. - A traffic stop lands a Seaford man behind bars on drug charges. According to the Delaware State Police, on Sunday morning, around 10:50 AM, a trooper on patrol near the First Stop Convenience Store, on West Street in Laurel, reportedly saw a drug transaction take place.

The trooper says that when the man saw the trooper, he went into the store, and didn't come out for several minutes. When he did, the trooper says, the man got into the passengers side of a Kia Soul, which left, and then apparently proceeded to drive up onto a curb on West 6th Street.

The trooper reportedly turned on its lights and sirens and the Soul pulled into the New Zion United Methodist Church parking lot. Police say that as the car stopped, the passenger jumped out and started running on foot, while carrying a blue nylon bag. The trooper was able to take him and the blue bag into custody. The bag reportedly had more than 40 grams of cocaine, 50 bags of heroin totaling 3 grams, 41 grams of marijuana, 22 oxycodone pills, and assorted drug paraphernalia.

39-year-old Xavier Johnson was charged with possession with intent to deliver cocaine, heroin, and marijuana. Along with tampering with physical evidence, resisting arrest, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, and two counts possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held at Sussex Correctional Institution on $130,000 cash bond.
